The Early November

As I typed out today's title, I couldn't help but sing to myself any and every Early November song that popped into my head. Their music had a huge influence on me during my high school and early college years, and this time of year I always get sentimental about their music. Their band has come and gone, and even come back again, but nothing will ever compare to their early years, and the warm, nostalgic feeling that I get when I listen to their music this time of year. Did you ever listen to them when you were younger? Do you have a favorite song? I want to hear you sad always does it for me. Teen angst + the thought of living in New England and having basement shows = The Early November in a nut shell (for me, at least!).

Lately, my days have been jammed packed with work, wedding planning, and snapping photos whenever I can. Now that the sun goes down before I get home, my schedule feels a bit out of wack. I'm working out the kinks, though, and getting my daily life organized (hello, new routine of packing meals at 10:30pm, taking late night showers, and making the fullest of the hours I do have at home with Scott). I've never been a great planner (and for some reason people always find that surprising), but lately I've been making a more conscious effort to be better at making plans, sticking to a timeline, and checking more things off of my to-do list! For example, finally sending off the last bit of our Save The Date cards, working on our wedding registry, and editing/posting here more consistently. Check, check, check!
*PS +100 bonus points if you know they song that I'm referencing above - I know that I didn't give you much to work with there, but I have a feeling a few of you might know my musical tastes & can catch it!

Now that Halloween is over, I'm still trying to soak in as much of that fall feeling that I can before the holidays sneak up on us. At work, I've been working on holiday projects since August, so I've been desperately trying to hold off those warm and cozy feelings for months now. Today, Scott made it even more difficult by sending me a picture of the most darling puppy Christmas outfits that he bought for our pups from the dollar section at Target - oh, they're gonna look cute! Not to mention, every time I go to Starbucks I desperately want a gingerbread americano! Ok, ok - simmer down, Chelsea! We've still got a few more weeks to fully enjoy the fall vibes that this beauitful city has been giving off lately!

I'm off to enjoy the rest of my very large iced coffee that I got this morning (see my coffee induced tweets from this morning here), and read a few blogs before getting back to work.

What are you excited for during this early November?
What does your daily routine look like?
